Since this has started back in 2010, I'm going to put on my tinfoil hat and come up with a theory. What does Obama have to gain from targeting Tea Party groups? Answer is almost nothing. On the other hand, establishment Republicans have considered the Tea Party a huge threat from the start. Tea Party does populist politics and astroturfing really well, attracting common Joe Shmoe, but pick really awful, terrible candidates. Most of the Tea Party candidates that won primaries in 2010 were downright fucking nuts, and most of them didn't win, because they only appealed to the loony fringe. Republicans fought them during the primaries, and were always under a threat from the Tea Party of being primaried in otherwise safe "red states," which would divide the vote, and cause the state to turn blue (which actually happened in 2010). So, some high ranking Republican Senators and/or House members secretly instructed the IRS to target Tea Party groups, and make it as hard for them to raise money and participate in politics as possible. As a result, they were able to regain a lot of the seats they lost in the 2012 elections. And if they get caught, they can just blame it on Obama, since it would be "obvious" to everyone that he is the "Scary Black Man™ who is only in office because he cheated, and he is the only one with incentive to attack Tea Party I mean Republicans."

FWIW, Adam Curry agrees with you. But he proudly flies his crackpot flag, so take that how you will.

I'm by no means a conservative. But This is so wrong. Someone needs to take a big fall for this. Saying that it was not political is just not credible.  Shame on the IRS.

I mean, we've got the IRS thing, the AP thing, the Fast and Furious thing, Bengazi. 

What the FUCK???

There's definitely an issue with the IRS thing and the AP thing. And even with the drone thing, the VA thing, the Guantanamo thing, the war in Afghanistan thing, etc. But there's nothing there regarding Fast and Furious and Bengazi. Take a peek outside foxnewsiverse.

The Bengazi thing is not being covered for one simple reason. It would tarnish the next Democrat in line for PotUS... that is Billery.

The rot actually stems from Wall Street and their buying of Washington.

You're blaming the businesses for the fact that it's cheaper to buy a politician than it is to compete in a free market?

No, the businesses buy the politicians to setup the regulations so they don't actually have to compete in a free market. Tax loopholes for them. Tax hikes for everyone else. They pay a fine. Everyone else goes to jail. It's a rigged system and both corporations and government are to blame since they have become one and the same.

While I certainly don't disagree with that last point, corporations and government definitely have mostly merged (it's not quite the United States of Monsanto, yet), who do we blame? The businessmen who simply are looking for the most economical way to stay in business, or the politicians who sell out cheap (and created the corporation to begin with)?

Strike the root, not the branches.
